Hi all, this is my first post and I’m on day 4 of my keto journey.
I am 35, female, and have been overweight or obese since I was about 12. Currently around 96-97kg.
I understand that to begin with I should just focus on very low carb and getting nearly all my calories from fat and protein, but I want to start thinking about the best foods now so I can plan.
What I have noticed, while tracking, is that I am eating a lot of protein. In the first podcast and the one on protein it is recommended to eat only 1g per lean kg body weight. According to my scale that would only be 55g protein (I’m over 40% fat). I’m eating more like 100-150g per day, but alongside a similar amount of fat.
I have also noticed my fibre is not very high, maybe 10-15g.
So my question is, aside from eating actual fat (coconut oil, butter, double cream, etc), what is the best way to get more fat into my diet, but without extra protein. Is it just adding these fats to my food, or are there foods high in fat but not protein?
Also, I know non starchy veggies are good for fibre, but are any particularly good, and is there anything aside from veggies that is a good source of fibre, but not protein.
Many thanks in advance,
